Getting Rid of Hot and Cold Spots with Air Conditioner Service

Hot and cold spots in your home can be an annoyance to say the least. They can be damaging to your home comfort, but what’s worse is that they could indicate problems with your heating and cooling system. You may want air conditioner service and Triton HVAC & Refrigeration is ready to help you, but we’ve got some things you can think about before your air conditioner service call.

Hot and cold spots may mean that you have an inadequate number of cold air return vents or it might require something as simple as unblocking a blocked air vent. Just walk through your home and see if anything is blocking any of your vents. If you find that you have a vent or two covered by furniture or your child has dropped clothes in front of one, you’re not getting what you need from your heating and cooling system.

If the problem is something more serious like not having enough cold air return vents, you should ask an expert—whether during a routine air conditioner service appointment or if you call about this issue specifically. It’s amazing how many homes have only a single cold air return. Oftentimes a single cold air return isn’t going to keep your home evenly heated or cooled.

What can you do?

  1. Examine the furniture arrangments of the rooms that have hot and cold spots. Even if vents aren’t directly blocked, the arrangement of furniture in each room could be hindering uninterrupted airflow throughout that room.
  2. Call Triton HVAC & Refrigeration to have a professional duct system evaluation, so we can discover what’s causing your hot and cold spots. We can give you suggestions and help you resolve any issues we come across.
  3. Have an expert clean your ducts to make a positive change to your home’s comfort. This may not solve all of your issues with hot and cold spots, but you may perceive a big improvement once your vents are unobstructed.

There’s no reason hot and cold spots should be making your home uncomfortable and your HVAC system inefficient.
